MY FAVORITE SIMPLE USES OF ESSENTIAL OILS: (not included on recipe cards)
Sore Throat Soother – Whenever my throat is a little sore, I use a drop of Cinnamon Bark oil right on the back of my throat. It is a good burn and usually my sore throat goes away with only one or two applications. (This may not be for everyone. My husband can’t take it! 🙂 Also, never use straight cinnamon bark oil for children. It’s very potent! ) Another good way to use it for a sore throat, is to add 1 drop of Cinnamon Bark oil to a cup of herbal tea.
Sinus Knock-Out: A 50-50 mixture of Eucalyptus & Peppermint Oil, sniffed once or twice a day will open up your sinuses. I have had sinus issues for years that are now totally gone due to sniffing this mixture every day. Awesome & so simple! You can order the sniffers from Amazon. (Essential oils are not included)
All-Natural Wart Remover: I had a couple stubborn warts that would go away no matter how many applications of Wart Remover I tried. Then, I simply applied Tea Tree Oil 2x’s a day, covering it with a band-aid. 2 weeks later…it was gone for good. (That was 2 years ago!)
Disinfecting your floors – I love my steam mop, but I like to take the cleaning power even further. I add Thieves concentrate to the water in the mop. Thieves smells AMAZING and is a natural disinfectant. I feel good knowing my floors look beautiful and are disinfected…well, for a few minutes anyway! 🙂 Order Thieves only from Young Living.
SIMPLE ESSENTIAL OIL RECIPES YOU’VE GOT TO TRY: (the following recipes are included in the printable recipes on recipe cards)
Sore Throat Drops – This delicious and all-natural recipe is for cough/sore throat drops. Yummy!
My Favorite Flu-Buster: I love this flu-busting remedy! If you don’t like hot teas when you are sick, this cold drink will hit the spot. I drink it when I start feeling a cold coming on.
Peppermint Body Scrub – this is the easiest and most scrumptious bath scrub on the planet. And, you can make it with just a few of your favorite ingredients! Need a jar? I buy my honey in jars that clamp shut and then reuse those jars for my body scrub. A Ball jar would work perfectly.
Peppermint Whitening Toothpaste – This stuff is the bomb. Love it! I store this in a simple ball jar.
Peppermint Lip Balm – See the lip balm recipe card. You will need to order lip balm tubes. Try these!
A Manly Body Scrub – See Body Scrub recipe card.
Foaming Hand Soap – I love delicious-smelling hand soap. If I make my own, I can make a better all-natural, antibacterial soap for pennies! So easy!
